The Truth About You…My Lighthouse

God Knows the Plan

Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.”

Isaiah 64:8

Would you like to know the future? To know what will happen tomorrow? What will happen next year? Or maybe, you would just like to know if something is hiding in the dark? Or, if you passed your last math test?

There are lots of things we don’t know. And, sometimes, it’s scary not knowing. Sometimes, we might worry when we don’t know. Do you ever get scared or worried? What are things that scare you or worry you?

Well, I know someone that knows all the answers, He knows everything. And, He has a plan for you. He is going to use all the good things, all the scary things and all the sad things to create you, to shape you. Sometimes He might tell you “wait, it’s not time yet” or “wait, you’re not ready yet”. But, that’s OK, because He knows the plan for you. He knows exactly what you need and when you need it. Do you know who that someone is?

Let’s watch the video

Just like the potter, God has a plan. He has a plan for each of us. And, like the clay, we need to be prepared and worked and we will definitely need to wait sometimes, but when we allow God to shape us, when we trust God’s plan for us, we too will be beautiful and strong like the clay.

So, the next time you are worried or scared, remember that God has a plan for you and He does not want us to worry.

Read Matthew 6:25-33

Rather than worry, focus on God. Remember who God is. Remember that God loves us (Ephesians 2:4).  Remember that God is good (Psalm 34:8). Remember that God is always there (Psalm 139:7-10).

When we remember all these things and we focus on God, it is very difficult not to trust God and His plan for us.  (Jeremiah 29:11).

Here’s the video of our new song. Teach your parents the actions. Sing the song to help you remember that we can always trust God and that God is always there to show us the way.
